using forest pack lite on different machines
« on: February 16, 2011, 07:14:49 PM »
Hello all, i've just started using forest pack lite for evaluation for our company, i've got it installed on my development workstation, my render server and my work station at home ( i work from home also).
My problem is this; I'd like to know how to set up the proper material path so that each machine can find the same material and render the scene as it's supposed to. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

There is not difference between the materials used by Forest or other objects in the scene. You may copy your maps in a network shared folder, and add it to Customize->Configure User Paths->External Files.

If the problem are the maps included with Forest, they are located at C:\Program Files\ItooSoft\Forest Pack Lite\maps. Copy them in some folder accessible by the render nodes.
